All day and overnight summer camps for 2020 are canceled.

FAMILY CAMPS HAVE NOT BEEN CANCELED since accommodations and outdoor activities are limited to individual families.

Options for handling your camp cancellation:

  1. We ask you to prayerfully consider donating all or part of your camper registration fee(s) from this year as a tax-deductible gift to help sustain Deer Run through this crisis.
  2. If you are not in a position to donate your registration fee, we will gladly allow you to transfer your registration fee to 2021 camps and your camp date can be chosen at a later time.
  3. Keep the funds as a credit to use towards any Deer Run Family Event, a private birthday party, etc.
  4. Of course, we will refund your entire camper fee including your deposit at your request.

Contact our Guest Relations Team at Contact@DeerRun.camp to let them know your choice or if you have questions. We ask that you are patient since they are overwhelmed responding to all camper parents. They will respond to you as quickly as possible.



Unplug from the busyness of your regular routine and show up without having to spend time planning all the details; we take care of that for you! Deer Run’s private 100-acre scenic property with first-class accommodations just south of Franklin, TN is a perfect setting for your family to have incredible fun together!

Spend focused time with each other participating in activities that are loads of fun and connect each person in your family.

Everything is included … delicious meals, recreation, games, upscale lodging, and incredible service including a designated family assistant (college-age student or young adult) to help with your kids! Plan on relaxing on the porches of The Lodge surrounded by peaceful woods or on the sand beach at Spring Valley Lake.

Create long-lasting memories with your family as you experience the outdoors, grow spiritually, and strengthen relationships. Parents will have the opportunity to break away for a valuable marriage/relationship and parenting tips session while children ages 4 and under are cared for by family assistants and ages 5 and up participate as a group in recreation.

Single Parent Family Camps: Single parents are welcome to attend any of our family camps. However we offer two sessions — June 12-15 and July 17-20 — that are designed specifically for those who are parenting alone. This is a unique experience of refreshment, adventure, strengthening, and an opportunity to connect with other single parent families. Robert Beeson, Solo Parent Society and author of “Going Solo: Hope and Healing for the Single Mom or Dad,” joins us during this pivotal three days together.


Your incredible family experience begins on Friday with check-in from 4:30 to 6:15 p.m. and ends on Monday at 1:30 p.m.

Registration includes:

  • all activities and recreation (no surprise add-ons)
  • 9 delicious, abundant five-star meals prepared by Deer Run’s chefs
  • a private room in upscale lodging (unless you are registering without overnight accommodations)
  • a Deer Run shirt for each participant
